Many of the homes I’ve featured over the last few months have been from Indy’s Old Northside.
When I posted the last one, with its blue siding in disrepair, I got some comments about how funny it was the house had a security sign, and an inquiry as to whether I’d been strolling through seedy neighborhoods.
Kinda broke my heart.
All these doors are neighbors.
They’re all rare homes, and highly-sought after. They’re homes that still have original this and authentic that. Even when they’re vacant and sad, they’re worth more than other homes because they contain character and craftsmanship few can afford to build new. They’re sat in a historic neighborhood, on good sized lots.
Poor old things, people just don’t love them right.
I love old things.
But here’s a newly renovated home — in the same neighborhood, just doors away from all the other doors.
Pretty, non? Great lines. Love the fence, the rails, the ceilings, the potted plants, the letterbox, the narrow windows. Splendid details. Gorgeous doors.
Old doors, new glass? or all old? or all new? Whatcha think about the doors here?
Either way, I’ll always prefer the old.
